  • Red-letter Christianity or red flag socialism?

    10/05/2013 2:47:49 PM PDT · by ReformationFan · 5 replies
    Renew America ^ | 10-5-13 | Robert Meyer
    Recently a Community Column writer for a local paper wrote an opinion piece denouncing conservative politicians for not complying with the "Red-Letter" teachings of Jesus. Among other things, he was referring more specifically to Ted Cruz's call for evangelical Christians to help his political bloc to defund Obamacare. This claim is worthy of careful examination. Emphasizing the authority of one portion of scripture while ignoring all others isn't a principle of historical normative Christian theology. As the Bible declares of itself "...All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." Red-lettering was first conceived in 1899, and it first appeared in...
  • Why I Called Out Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer

    I have been preaching for 20 years.  Yesterday I did something that I have never done before in a sermon.  I publicly called out false teachers and named them by name.  I said, If you listen to Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer, if you take what they teach seriously, it will not be good for you.  It will be detrimental to your long-term growth as a follower of Jesus. (You can watch the sermon by clicking here)I used to think that their error was so blatantly obvious that they could just be ignored.  I was wrong.  They are massively growing...

    Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer sent an apology letter to a lesbian and gay advocacy group on campus for his plans to use lavender football jerseys as a form of punishment to players in practice according to and the OSU campus newspaper, The Lantern. The lavender jersey would be given to a player caught "loafing" - or a moment of deceleration - for the second time during a conditioning drill. The concept was created by Ohio State strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti. The school will now use a different color.

    Time’s ‘Person of the Year’ is ‘The Protestor.’ Now, wait a minute, people. Nobody consulted me, but just for the record, my vote goes elsewhere–for US Border Patrol Agents Brian Terry and Jesus Diaz, and former Marine Sergeant and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer. Why? Because each member of this three-man team put his life on the line to protect the rule of law, to uphold, not challenge it, and he did it not once, not twice, but every day he got up and went out to do his job. I’m thinking an attaboy or two might not be...
  • Marine Who Won Medal of Honor Fights Allegations He is Mentally Unstable

    In September, President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation's most prestigious military award, to Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the marine who saved 36 of his comrades during an ambush in Afghanistan. Obama called Meyer one of the most "down-to-earth guys that you will ever meet." But today Meyer, 23, is having trouble getting a job because of allegations by defense contractor BAE Systems that he has a drinking problem and is mentally unstable. Meyer filed legal papers Monday claiming the allegations were in retaliation for objections he raised about BAE's alleged decision to sell high-tech sniper scopes to the...

Dakota Meyer, who left the service last year, will be the third living recipient of the award for actions in Afghanistan and the tenth man recognized for exceptional bravery in the current wars. Hell also be the first living Marine to receive the honor since the Vietnam War.

Breaking Dawn is the longest in Stephenie Meyer's 4-book series lengthwise and it's the most graphic -- presenting birth, attempted murder, death, and of course vampire bites.

    TASER INCIDENT UF police cleared in 'Don't Tase me, Bro' case University of Florida cops were exonerated in the stunning of a student. The student may face charges. Andrew Meyer, the University of Florida student who was Tasered by campus police in September, may have staged the disturbance in an effort to disrupt a political forum at the Gainesville campus, a state police report concludes. The report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, released Wednesday by the university, cleared UF police of wrongdoing in subduing Meyer, 21. Meyer, of Weston, was subdued with a Taser after he resisted arrest...

    I politically came of age in the early 80s. Reagan was president and fusionism was what got him there. He walked a tight rope of liberty versus virtue that are/were conservatism's highest ideals. I think too many conservatives either have forgotten about fusionsism, or disregard it, or never heard of it. I'll admit that this is an unabashed plea to social cons to willingly step down from their control of the republican party and join the rest of us in winning the next presidential election. I will be collecting and posting as many blog posts and articles as I can...

    "I've said to people we don't torture. And we don't." That's what President Bush told Katie Couric yesterday. That was a very odd thing to say on the very day his Pentagon repudiated interrogation "techniques" it had been using and embraced international standards for humane treatment of all detainees in military custody. These standards, by the way, will still not apply to detainees in CIA custody who can still be subjected to "techniques" translation: torture. The president also told Ms. Couric that one of the things he felt badly about from his tenure was Abu Ghraib. Now Abu Ghraib...

    A job title usually tells what we do, not who we are, but it was different with Ray Meyer. He was a husband for 46 years and a father of six children. Most of all, though, he was a basketball coach. For Meyer, who died of congestive heart failure Friday afternoon at age 92, his job description was his life description. That's why his late wife, Marge, and his six kids didn't call him Ray or Dad. They called him "Coach." It was a tribute to his dedication to the game and the young men who played it for him...

    Intelligent debate Last week Stephen Meyer had a piece published in the Daily Telegraph in London, "Intelligent design is not creationism." As sometimes happens with the appearance of a an article advocating intelligent design, there was a flurry of anti-ID letters. However, there were also two letters worth noting. ======================================================= Sir - Most readers of books by Michael Behe or William Dembski find intelligent design a rational, but not necessarily correct, idea (Letters, January 30). Darwinists clearly think they can refute the idea that complex structures need a designer; others think they are wrong. All this is fine - we...

Indeed, the third person in the world killed the fourth - or, if you prefer the more secular images, primitively there was always present "continual fear and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short."

    The Right and Duty of Self-Defense (National Review, May 17, 1966) (Words in italics are the authors original empathesis, boldface and underlining my empathesis.) The present state of affairs in our great cities raises one of the most fundamental problems in political philosophy in the most immediately practical way: the right of self-defense when civil society fails to protect the individual. The most divergent moral and political theories of the West agree that all men possess the inherent right of self-defense when their lives, their persons or their property are forcefully or violently attacked. Under normal conditions of civil peace,...

Over the years I have argued that these positions are in fact not incompatible opposites, but complementary poles of a tension and balance which, both in theory and practice, define American conservatism as it has come into being at midcentury. If anything, I have stressed the libertarian emphasis because I have felt that unmodified traditionalism, stressing...
